2016 5-Star Guard Rawle Alkins Trolls College Basketball World With "Committed To Buffalo" Tweet

Rawle Alkins has a little Cardale Jones in him, apparently. 

This morning, the 2016 five-star shooting guard from New York announced on Twitter where he will be playing college basketball. 

His decision: Buffalo. 

Um, what? The No. 15 player in the 2016 class will be playing his college basketball at the University of Buffalo?

Apparently not, actually. 

Alkins pulled a Cardale Jones, the Ohio State quarterback who announced last spring he was transferring to Akron, only for him to later announce it was a "May Fools" joke. 

The "committed to Buffalo" tweet was a joke, according to's Evan Daniels.

Alkins now claims someone at his school took his phone and pulled the prank.
